It will be a Veterans Day to remember for the families of some soldiers in Minnesota's Army National Guard who have been serving overseas. The Associated Press reports that 18 of the soldiers in the 147th Human Resources Company are returning home this Veterans Day. They have been stationed in Kuwait and Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom since last year.
Another 27 soldiers from their company are scheduled to return next month.
